I'm tring to install Brothers in Arms: Road to hill 30 & it crashes when I try to launch the installer. I've uploaded a screenshot of the error message at http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/brothersInArms.jpg

The computer is an athlon XP 3000+ with 768mb RAM and a Radeon 9500. I installed the latest drivers & it still does the same thing. It already had the latest version of directX (9.0c)

Any ideas on how to get it to install?

I just double checked & the video card is actually a 9550. I also get an error message when I try to send a bug report. http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/BIAbug-report.jpg

Try copying the cd/DVD to your HDD first then run the install.

That seems to have worked. It took several attempts to copy the DVD to the hard drive (it had some really small scratches that I thought wouldn't cause any trouble, but ended up causing a lot of trouble) but it is done now & the installer didn't crash.

I'll have to check up on it tomorrow to see if the game runs.
